~ABOUT THE BOOK~
As a child, Rose Franklin made an astonishing discovery: a giant metallic hand, buried deep within the earth. As an adult, she’s dedicated her brilliant scientific career to solving the mystery that began that fateful day: Why was a titanic robot of unknown origin buried in pieces around the world? Years of investigation have produced intriguing answers—and even more perplexing questions. But the truth is closer now than ever before when a second robot, more massive than the first, materializes and lashes out with deadly force.
Now humankind faces a nightmare invasion scenario made real, as more colossal machines touch down across the globe. But Rose and her team at the Earth Defense Corps refuse to surrender. They can turn the tide if they can unlock the last secrets of an advanced alien technology. The greatest weapon humanity wields is knowledge in a do-or-die battle to inherit the Earth . . . and maybe even the stars.
~MY QUICKIE REVIEW~
This was a re-read/listen on audio as a refresher for my e-ARC of Only Human. And also...because I love this series in Audio format. My eARC of Waking Gods review can be seen here. My review of Sleeping Giants (the first book in the Themis Files) can be seen here.
The Themis Files is freaking amazing...this pic kind of says it all.
An easily conceptualized science fiction series infused with mysterious alien elements and plenty of wtf and omg moments thrown in. Seriously, that ending…I'm so psyched to see where this series is going with the 3rd installment. I'm fairly certain I'll be starting it soon.
